  1. After filling spa allow water to circulate for approximately 1 hour then add 250 - 400g of Calcium Hardener.  With filter running, wait for 20 minutes.
  2. Add 250-400g of PH Buffer.  With filter running, wait for 20 minutes.
  3. Test pH and adjust as necessary using either pH Increase to raise or pH Decrease to lower the level (using dessertspoon amounts). 7.2 to 7.4 is ideal.
  4. After 30 minutes, add 1 or 2 Bromine Tablets to the adjustable spa floating dispenser in the pool.
  5. Add a small amount of Spa Chlor (dessertspoon). This will sanitise the water and help activate the Bromine.


Use AquaChek Spa Test Strips to check that a 4-6 ppm Free Bromine
residual is maintained.

  • Test and adjust pH accordingly – 7.2-7.4 is ideal


  • Remove the floating dispenser. Run your spa for 30 minutes
  • Super chlorinate (shock dose) the pool with 50g per 1,000L Spa Chlor
  • Check and clean cartridge filter with hose
  • Use No Foam to control foaming
  • Velvet Touch Water Enhancer gives the water a soft, velvety feel to the water.  It clarifies and gives protection against corrosion
  • Crystal Clear eliminates suspended dirt and organic matter that encourages bacteria and algae growth


Important Tip: Always add chemicals to water, not water to chemicals.
